Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers Bangalore
28/10/20, 2pm (GMT), Abu Dhabi
MUMBAI INDIANS – 8/11
ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE – 11/10
After focusing our attentions on the middle of the table and that final play-off spot, it is time to take a break as two of the teams destined for the finals face each other in Abu Dhabi.
Both teams have come unstuck lately to teams at the bottom of the table – Mumbai Indians were thrashed by Rajasthan Royals – and the absence of Rohit Sharma will be a worry for the defending champions.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have a 100 per cent winning record at the ground so will fancy their chances of an upset with the winner set to go top of the table with just two games to play.
RCB to post the highest opening partnership – 1/1
This bet could depend upon the availability of Rohit Sharma for Mumbai. Ishan Kishan has been a capable deputy, but with the RCB pace attack they will fancy making early inroads.
Aaron Finch hasn’t found his best form in the UAE but together with Devdutt Padikkal has formed a reliable opening partnership, which could provide a platform for RCB to exceed 5.5 sixes in the innings, which has odds of 5/4.
